Lewis tells a fair yarn but the interesting thing is his thinking on the state of Man in the universe. If your looking for escapist fiction, this isn't it. The science is half baked and the dialogue contrived. The ideas, however, are worth pondering.
I'm sure this is a great book, but I don't have time to read it and this particular narrator's voice really makes my brain tune out. It's too bad, because he narrates many of Lewis' books.
Well written as always with CSL. The mechanics of the world are less evocative the n those of Melecandra.
Infinite Circles within the Sphere. Lewis opens the mind to a world of hidden planets and beings beyond this planet, yet near to the hearts of those who chose to explore.
With the help of a trans solar coffin Dr. Ransom explores Venus. Lands on float of water a land of gold and pleasure. It is a reimagined Garden of Eden...with Biblical undertones and the great question of good and evil... Life and death...
If you are a fan of C.S. Lewis this books for you!
Great narration very beautiful in its description wonderfully imaginative.
I loved the book and the beautiful core of Godliness and hope for each man, woman and all of God's creatures.
Geoffrey Howard's style is very similar to CSL's speaking style. Re the book itself, the writing style is the opposite of that in the Narnia nooks. Instead of telling a story that reaches a moral, CSL uses the story yo frame the conversations that teach the moral.
